Jazz Apple Cafe & Cupcake Emporium

Boasting an amazing range of 30+ different flavours (selling 9 different flavours every week, $4 each), Jazz Apple Cafe (222 City Walk, City) seems to be the latest most talked about thing in Canberra, even though it has only been in business for around 7 weeks. Located just a few steps from my work place, i clearly had to go and check it out. You can't miss JAC, because it has a big sign written 'Best Cupcakes' right in front of it! I wonder...best cupcakes in Canberra? NSW? Australia? Well, it doesn't matter...i'm happy if it's just The Best Cupcakes in Canberra since we never actually had a proper place that sold cupcakes. As i walk in, my attention is immediately drawn towards the multitude of pretty, colourful and scrumptious cupcakes all awaiting in line to be readily devoured (by me). To my amazement, i managed to suppress the inner me (who desperately wanted to buy 9 different flavours of cupcakes) and ended up buying one...yes, O-N-E cupcake! It was hard to make a decision because i wanted to try everything but mainly the Triple Chocolate Mud, Strawberry & White Chocolate, Moist Vanilla, Lemon & Poppyseed! I ended up choosing the Moist Vanilla as i remember that it was quoted in the Canberra 'Food & Wine' Magazine as one of the favourite picks (including Triple Chocolate Mud and Jersey Caramel Mud). Moist Vanilla is a pretty cupcake with a very moist vanilla base topped with a lilac coloured butter cream icing and finished with a cute violet flower on top.
Taste-wise? Very nice and moist vanilla base and the icing was fluffy and soft...good balance of sweetness too! Definately coming back for more since there are so many flavours that i have yet to try! *Eargely awaiting for the Key Lime & Cococut cupcake =9


Moist Vanilla Cupcake, $4 (i ruined a bit of the icing, sorry cupcake!)

wooo~~~ I did take note of that cupcake shop, but I wasn't sure is it as good as it claims to be. :P
I'll probably give it a try someday... maybe we can go together and order different cupcakes to try out! :)

Foodie huh? Not much of a foodie if you didn't know about Cherry Seed - the original and best Cupcake shop in Canberra. It's been operating for over 2 years at Gold Creek. Jazz Apple have nothing on these cupcakes.......

I agree that Cherry Seed is miles better than jazz Apple. I don't rate thier cupcakes at all and can't see what the hype is about. They may have a better location and do more advertising than Cherry Seed (or other excellent cakeries hidden in this town) but their product lets them down in my opinion. However, I'm sure they'll do well selling to people who have no idea what REAL cake tastes like

tried jazz apple cupcakes when they just opened, i was overwealmed with the sugar. the icing is just sugar. went in today to give it another shot. it tastes like diabetes. i can make better cupcakes. its a bit sad when the icing is gritty from the sugar. cupcakes on pitt is miles infront of this store, canberra is in need of some good cupcake stores. gotta try cherry seed!
